Elizabeth Taylor, Christie’s, and the Case of the Cursed Necklace
Shah Jahan, the Mughal Emperor who built the Taj Mahal. Christie's was charged with finding a buyer for the necklace, and they did, but it was returned. And the Taylor estate refused to refund the money to Christie's. The kerfuffle has Christie's in a bind, and they are holding more of Taylor's jewelry collection until the deal is worked out. You can read the details of the necklace and its status, plus see a gallery of Elizabeth Taylor's other fabulous jewels that may be auctioned off at Vanity Fair.
